🎏🅾® ♏🅾♏🅱🌱It has been two years since my Momby’s death and I still don’t know what the “right” thing to do on a death anniversary is (I’m sure a lot of you feel the same way about your loved ones). So I decided to do something a little vulnerable for me, but something we both loved to do together - sing. This is the piano her father gave her and this was one of her favorite songs. And as the song says, we must “keep on moving”. I’ve found that what keeps me moving is doing things that make me happy, working hard on the things that I’m passionate about and surrounding myself with people I love and making them smile. I hope this encourages anyone feeling a little low or lost to “keep on moving”. As my Momby once said, “take your broken heart and turn it into art” - whatever that art may be for you. ❤
This past Wednesday marked two years since the passing of our Princess, Carrie Fisher, and her daughter Billie Lourd posted this touching tribute to her mother in which she sings Nico's "These Days" while accompanying herself on the piano. In fairness, I know that Jackson Browne wrote the song, but Nico recorded it first and he hit Darryl Hannah that one time, so he and I are decidedly not cool.
If you love the song or Carrie Fisher—or heaven help you, both—you'll likely be a mess by the time the song finishes. Reading the written portion of the post will cue the waterworks once more, no doubt. Happy Friday everyone. Your week's nearly over!
